Tweedsmuir Community History Books (or Tweedsmuirs as they are commonly known) uniquely capture and preserve local community history. They vary in form from a simple scrapbook to an elaborate series of volumes bound in leather, wood or a more formal blue-and-gold cover. Tweedsmuirs are comprised of a variety of information and often include a history of the: 

  • Local Women's Institute Branch

  • Earliest settlers in an area

  • Agricultural practices and individual farms

  • Industries that formed the basis of the local economy

  • Social institutions and public buildings, such as churches, schools and community centers

  • Local personalities, such as war veterans

  • And much, much more!


A very special thank you to the Township of South Frontenac.

In 2020, the Sydenham Women's Institute was successful in securing a grant from the Community Projects Grant Program which enabled us to digitize some of our Tweedsmuir History Books.
